I’ve only just discovered Charles Eisenstein and I’m completely blown away. If you haven’t already watched this two part talk, I highly recommend it. Charles understands the impact of our monetized society on our spiritual well being and embraces the gift economy as the only healthy answer.
45:12 – “This is not the way it’s suppose to be….the fulfillment of our life purpose is not suppose to be a struggle against survival; that either you have to survive and do what is practical and makes a living; or you have to do what speaks to your heart. It’s not suppose to be that way. The universe is suppose to support us in our gifts and those who give are suppose to receive.”
